Help me locate this Afro-Futurism video...

Years ago at school, I remember a video on Afro-Futurism. More than one instructor screened the video for my classes, so I've seen it a handful of times - but I can't remember the title, or where I can find it. I'm 90% sure it featured Kodwo Eshun extensively, as a "time traveler" who was researching the roots of Afro-Futurism and technology. It was focusing on music, mostly.

It was a creative documentary - the premise being there was a "time traveler" from the future who came back in time and couldn't return home. Again, I'm 90% sure it was Kodwo Eshun narrating the video, and "starring" as the time traveler.
The video had extensive interviews with musicians like Chuck D, Afrikka Bambaata, etc. - and they talked about their relationship with technology and music.
My Google-fu failed me on this, and I'd really like to get a copy of this video.

IMDB seems to find it, is that it?

At which point this could be it, but it's hard to tell for sure.
